Magnolia-Licious Challenge - Bingo

Today we have a fun new challenge at Magnolia-Licious, we have a Bingo card for you!
I'm sure you know the rules, simply make a straight line, either vertical, horizontal or diagonal and use the items on that line on your creation.


For my card I went with the center line, Lace, Die Cuts and Flowers.

So choose a Magnolia, Wee, or Wild Rose Studio image and have fun creating a project or card to join the challenge!
